What if I do not meet the Visual Acuity Standards on the application?

If any portion of the vision standard is not met, you must attach a letter from an eye professional stating your candidacy for one of the allowable corrective procedures listed on the form and the likelihood you will meet the standard following corrective surgery. The visual standard and appropriate healing and medical clearance must be met prior to hiring.

How do I ensure I am a competitive applicant?
